2022 PaTTAN Literacy Symposium
37. Experience Dyslexia: A Simulation
Wednesday June 15, 2022 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM - Webinar
Many have read about Dyslexia, including the neurological basis, demographics, warning signs, and interventions, but few have experienced it. This session provides hands-on activities that mimic problems associated with beginning reading, visual-motor, writing, auditory discrimination, and arithmetic.
Those who have attended this Simulation have walked away with a new understanding not found in literature. "Being a teacher, I was able to gain a better understanding of the level of frustration students experience while reading, writing, and listening. The various simulations made me reflect on how I interact with students. I am more aware of how 'good intentions' could cause students to feel sad, inferior, and anxious." (k-12)
